On the other hand, unless I'm mistaken as to who had said what, Karl 
wasn't exactly completely guiltless in provoking said list police with 
some rather harsh wording at some point.

Second, if list police also do contribute to helping people, then if you 
want to try to get their help you should try to play to their rules as 
much as you may hate it.  Otherwise they will ignore or blacklist your 
requests.  If that doesn't bother you, then do whatever the h$ll you 
want, I guess.

I dislike the listmoms too, but at the same time if people are screwing 
with the way things thread it does get annoying when trying to follow 
requests for help.  *shrug*
